Multiple award-winning author Jon Scieszka grew up in Flint, Michigan, the second oldest and the nicest of six boys. Jon went to school at Culver Military Academy in Indiana where he was a Lieutenant; Albion College in Michigan where he studied to be a doctor; and Columbia University in New York, where he received an M.F.A. in fiction. He taught elementary school in New York for ten years in a variety of positions. He is the author of many books for children including the New York Times Best Illustrated Book The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales (illustrated by Lane Smith), the Caldecott Honor book The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (illustrated by Lane Smith), and Math Curse (illustrated by Lane Smith). In addition to his work as an author, Jon also runs a web-based literacy program called Guys Read” that is designed to encourage boys, particularly reluctant readers, to get involved with books. In 2008, Jon was named the country’s first National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, a joint effort of the Library of Congress and the Children’s Book Council. During his two-year role as Ambassador, he acted as a spokesperson for children’s literature, speaking to groups of parents, teachers, and children to encourage the importance of reading.

Happily ever after??? What might that mean if you're the Frog Prince and the princess just cannot abide lily pads in bed or hopping in the castle? While on a quest to find a witch to turn him back into a frog, the disconsolate prince creates his own satisfactory solution. In this extension of the familiar tale, Jon Scieszka's zany humor resonates in Patrick Lawlor's narration. Lawlor convincingly portrays a prissy princess and oozes personality as a series of witches who have agendas of their own for the prince. Music and sound effects add just the right amount of setting--clattering brick paths, chattering forest creatures, and bonging clocks.
